Best Beach for my mom


Recommended Posts

Not much in the way of shells that I have seen on Cozumel.  She should focus on Paradise Beach, where you can walk along the shore all the way to Sanchos and explore.  $3 admission fee/chair rental, and they ask that you spend at least $10 on food/drinks per person (one drink and some nachos will do it - the taco truck there is great!).

“Best” is very subjective depending on what she wants to do - walk on soft sand;? quiet;? activities;? ability to swim in clear water?


However, if she wants large, sandy, quiet beaches to walk on  I would suggest east side - Punta Morena, San Martin, Punta Sur. Heed warnings for swimming due to currents and secure round trip transport in advance (self-drive, or we prefer driver for a few hours). Shells can be hit or miss.

Easier for transport Playa  Palancar, or Passion Island, through the ship.

Check out Google images and reviews.

Quiet, sand, and shells.  That is her thing 🙂. Thanks!

Would suggest she uses a private company (we use ToursPlaza) and let them advise her on places to stop if she would like an island tour to see different beaches and wild waves on east side - much different to the tourist areas of the west side but you need transport of some sort. (Not so nice if it is sargassum season.)

She will definitely get sand and quiet at San Martin, (can’t guarantee shells) and limited facilities across the road. 

We also like Punta Morena, away from main restaurant area - lots of hammocks, some loungers and towel on the beach areas. More facilities and expected to purchase a drink or snack.
